Dear Black People, may I have a few minutes of your time? I think a lot has been forgotten over the years with classes, family, and life ruling our schedules. Do you remember why you matriculated to this institution? Take a moment and imagine a life without Welcome Weekend and OMED. Imagine your…

I know, I knowthatthere are good people… But I wonder… I wonder who would still do good…

I know, I know
that
there are good
people…

But I wonder…

I wonder who would
still do good
in the world
if promise of heaven
was not a reward?

My favorite part in FORREST GUMP - just Forrest’s reaction

This shows that Forrest knows about reality and how he is different, but it also shows how much he cares already for his son and how he wants him to fit in and be like everyone else.

So, I believe that what you are looking for, really looking for, is that one person who is capable of recognizing you no matter what. You know, that one person who is going to be able to see past what everybody else sees and even past what you yourself see or want to show, then be able to look at you and really recognize you and say “That’s not you! This is you right over here! You just forgot yourself, but I see you! I will help you remember yourself, because I remember you!” And that’s what everyone wants. No, actually, I don’t know if that’s what everyone wants; but I know that’s what I want! Because I can put up so many damn walls and faces just to see who really knows me, who really recognizes me, who really remembers me, even more than I recognize and remember myself! Because if I don’t get that, then I don’t get anything, because I don’t want anything less than that.

Smart girls are the overthinkers, the insecure ones, the different ones. They know what the real world is like. They analyze every little thing in life. Why? To avoid getting hurt. To find happiness. They stay up at night trying to think about every possible situation to get through all the problems. They think too much. They trust fewer people. Their insecurity proves their respect toward themselves. Of course they try to live away from a drama-filled life. Smart girls know their worth. Now those are the ones worth keeping by your side.

DISCLAIMER: My cadence is staggered and my flow is as choppy as ceviche. Ceviche is delicious. My writing is not. So please, don’t expect anything palatable.

I knew once red scribbles emerged from the bottom of my name that I would never become a writer. I’ve never been…
